Last night, when I was doing an Instagram Live, someone made a less than favorable remark to me. I'm a human being, so even though I knew intellectually the comment was ludicrous, it still hurt. As I was whining about it to my busy husband, I decided instead of letting the negativity snowball, it would be a better use of energy to bring that conversation here.
If I'm being perfectly honest, my ideal New Year's Eve would consist of a large pizza and a bottle of red wine on the couch. But inevitably FOMO always sets in and I end up making plans and going out. So in an effort to get myself in a New Year's state of mind, I'm sharing my key ingredients for a successful night.
Like so many people, I am always working to improve myself. I get overwhelmed easily and I am extremely hard on myself. I am constantly plagued by guilt that I’m not doing enough with my own goals or being enough to those around me. I’ve had some curveballs thrown my way this past year and I have learned a lot about the dangers of expectations—of people and of life.
My goal with this blog has always been to use it as a platform to inspire others. It is crucial to me to be authentic and transparent for my readers so you trust me. I love writing about my styling process, my fashion influences, and how I cope (and sometimes fail to cope) with my busy life as a working mama in NYC. But, I’m realistic. I know many people land on this site and simply want to be able to click and buy what they see in the photos. I totally get that and so I want to tell you about a new platform that is changing the game for influencer generated content.
My husband and I just got back from a vacation to LA. He is in the middle of his residency and we rarely get much time together, so when we have the chance, we have to maximize it. I firmly believe that when it comes to devoting time to relationships, it's about quality over quantity. Life is hectic as heck, so it is paramount to remember why we fell in love in the first place and to keep our relationship a top priority. We are approaching our 7 year anniversary and he happened to have a week off, so we decided to head to the west coast.
